    x264 should install fine without any lame packages. As for FFmpeg, you should make sure lame installed properly. Did the Install LAME (optional) step fail for you?

    Also, don't forget to make distclean when performing an update as shown in the Updating FFmpeg and x264 section.

    I guess x264 is installed, but not ffmpeg. Let me take a look at what you're suggesting.
    Thanks!

Checkinstall has it's annoyances, but it seems to work fine for packages that aren't going to be re-distributed (like the ones from this guide) and doesn't require editing of a changelog. I suppose sed would be useful in this case, but I don't have much experience there.

    There can be some small advantages though for the most part nothing that would be 'generally' better.
    I do a set of certain sources once or twice an install as .debs but again some of the reasons are of low use for most
    (like keeping a local repo which again has some advantages and makes a re-install, if needed, quite simple and quick.

    Certainly with ffmpeg at some point some users will create issues if continually built as shared.

    I'd think things are good as currently done (w/checkinstall


    and doesn't require editing of a changelog. I suppose sed would be useful in this case, but I don't have much experience there.
    There are some interesting ways there though a manual edit is also quite easy.
    (though in this case (current lame), there is actually no need to to have the package named ..4 for karmic or lucid, the .3 will do and the lib is ...4 anyway
    Also if there is a suggestion to do as .debs much better to have the user create a build folder, otherwise could be confusing w/ stuff loose in home.

    As an ex. - only if one had devscripts installed -
    (and installing devscripts may be confusing to some, nothing actually needs to be entered, just navigating thru
    (blue can stay as is or be made legit, add. "<whatever>" can be added to debchange when desired, each is new line in changelog

    Code:
    mkdir lame && cd lame && \

    Re: HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

    Hi all, I am not sure if this is the right place to post this issue but here it is...

    Basically I am running a php script that encodes a 250Mb MOV file into 14 videos of different frame sizes and formats. The script takes over 10mins to run and after a period of time FFMPEG crashes with a "av_interleaved_write_frame(): Operation not permitted" error on one of the videos.

    From all the investigation I have done with this issue, the error is normally accompanied with a reason of something like "error, non monotone timestamps xxxxxx >= yyyyy". In my case it is not... it actually starts to encode the file and then crashes after a period of time with "av_interleaved_write_frame(): Operation not permitted". The other thing to mention is that If I encode the individual file via the command line or even via a php script it does not error and encodes with no problems.

    It always crashes around the 10min mark so I don't know if it is related to timestamps, a server config issue or an FFMPEG bug. It will encode 10 videos or more up to the point it crashes with no issue... from there the script will continue through the remaining videos to be encoded but all remaining videos have the 'av_interleaved_write_frame(): Operation not permitted' error.

    Has anyone experienced an issue similar to this or have any idea why I might be experiencing it. Thanks in advance.

    Re: HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

    It appears to me that FFmpeg is not the culprit, but it will be easier to guess what is going on if you provide the PHP script or a sample command at the very least. Does the error occur consistently? Have you tried it on another machine? Do you encounter the error with certain input/output formats?

    You can increase the output verbosity of FFmpeg with:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -i foo ...
    This may provide additional clues.

    Re: HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

    Sorry about that... I thought I had included the command. This is an example of one of the commands. It just loops through the script for 4 different frame sizes with 3 different output formats (mov, mp4 and wmv). This is an example of the mp4 version, the others just have different frame sizes and output type.

    /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -i GVowbt3vsrXL.mov -s 1920x1080 -sameq -vf "unsharp" -y GVowbt3vsrXL_4.mp4

    Yes it consistently fails on the same encoding video when running the script but not always on exactly the same frame... although always fairly close. It also depends on the size of the input video as to which encoding video it will fail on. But regardless if I run the script again using the same input file it was always fails at almost the same point each time for that input video. Note that this only happens for larger files... I do not have a problem when encoding < 200mb files. If I try with larger files it consistently fails.

    I haven't tried it on another machine... I have numerous RS cloud servers all set up with centos so I would assume they would react the same. It is something I can try though.

    I encounter the error at any point in the encoding... so it will be mp4, wmv, thumbnails or flv files... it just seems to be when ever the script hits a certain limit it crashes.

    Increasing the verbosity of FFMPEG command didn't really point to any real issue... maybe you will see differently. This is an extract of the output just before the crash

    Interestingly, the script is run via cron which is when I get the issues. If I run the script via a browser there is no error and it will complete with no problem. Cron logs don't log anything suspicious. So that leads me to think that you are correct in saying that FFMPEG is not the culprit... although the error returned leads you to think otherwise. It is like some limits are reached or some setting causes it to crash after a certain period.

    Are there any limits to cron or running FFMPEG via cron?

    Re: HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

    Have you tried compiling ffmpeg with a newer version of GCC? I say this because, I'm not sure about GCC 4.1.2 (as the log post indicated), but 3.4.5 would do something with ffmpeg that caused it to throw errors over MJPEG (also in the logs) and say it was miscompiled. Perhaps that issue - or something like it - was still present in 4.1.x, which would mean you need to use a more recent version of GCC.

    Thanks for the responses guys... I have solved the problem. I was running the cron under the owner of the domain rather then root... when I switch it to root, voila, it ran all the way through with no issues.

    I still don't know why it would fail for larger videos when run under the owner of the domain... probably some limitation or configuration. Something to keep in mind if you are experiencing similar issues.
